When Newshub's Mike McRoberts posted a pic of himself at the beach on his social media, he probably didn't expect the reaction he received.
The veteran news reporter, named News Presenter of the Year at the 2017 NZ Television Awards, completed his first Ocean Swim in the Wellington Harbour on Sunday.
He decided to post a snap of himself half-in, half-out of his wetsuit to celebrate.
But his social media admirers seemed to be more appreciative of his physical form than his athletic achievement.
The snap provoked a range of Twitter reactions.
On Instagram, the reaction was similar, with comments including 'dangg ole silver fox over here' and 'Mike McRoberts lookin HOT'.
We have to agree. Mike, you looking FINE!
